Global real estate rating system WiredScore has announced its expansion to the cities of Marseille and Cologne.
The company’s certification provides landlords and developers with the insights to improve and future-proof their buildings’ connectivity standards.
In the last five years, WiredScore has been introduced in six countries. The launch in Marseille follows WiredScore’s entry into France in March 2017. Five assets in the city have already committed to Wired Certification.
William Newton, president and EMEA MD at WiredScore, commented: ‘We’re seeing a huge shift in thinking globally with regards to digital connectivity as both landlords and occupiers realise the significance of remaining online and accessible at all times.
‘Business leaders need the guarantee that their office space has the ability to meet their technological needs,’ he added.
WiredScore launched its operations in Germany in September 2017. Cologne is the third German city where WiredScore works, with nine buildings committed to Wired Certification.
The buildings in Marseille include: Tour La Marseillaise (Constructa, Cepac, Caisse des Dépôts and Swiss Life), Quanta (Jaguar Network and Constructa), Calypso (Covivio and Crédit Agricole Assurances), The Camp (Redman), and Les Docks (Amundi and Constructa).
